The timeline is supposed to be accurate. And it is on my system.
You are only looking on the timeline and the PC's speakers, right? Not some external device? External devices could be off by a second or so.
For the part about being able to see the peaks, you can expand the Audio Track in the Timeline. First, in the lefthand section of that Track, click the arrow to "expand," then mouse over the upper edge of that Track, until you get a lock on it, and drag to expand further. This is from the PP2 side of it, but I doubt that it's changed much in CS3.
As to sync., follow Eddie's link and make sure that you are where Steven thinks you are.
actually it was a pretty simple solution.
i just didn't have enough room left on my c-drive. once i moved everything to an external drive and deleted all my clips from my c-drive premiere was running like a dream. of course then my external drive immediatley failed.
so then i had to move all my clips back onto my c drive. and premiere is again having the same sync problems as before. so i solved one problem, created another problem, and i'm back where i started. i'll be shopping for a new drive tomorrow i guess. just happy i didn't lose any data.
Having at least three internal drives for an editing computer is a very good idea.
Jim is correct.
well i purchased a second internal drive and in the process of moving all my files around again. i'm not sure i'll need a third just yet.
i mainly use photoshop and dreamweaver but
occassionaly will be editing video and audio.
can you please give me any advice as to how you split
up your data, scratch and cache between the three drives?
Best way is Windows and programs on the system drive. Put projects, scratch, pictures, music and exports on a second drive. Put the captured video files by themselves on a third drive.
